The Basic Sciences Division at Fred Hutch is seeking an experienced Grants and Contracts Research Administrator (RA) to join our team of Research Administrators (RA level III or IV depending on experience). We seek someone with administrative experience in pre- and post-award grant and contract administration to facilitate the work of our preeminent scientists. The position serves as a liaison between assigned faculty and the Fred Hutch central administrative departments and as such has an opportunity to provide a broad array of administrative support functions. The RA supports and ensures compliant and effective funding, budget and regulatory administration and general administrative support for one or several Principal Investigators and their labs. The RA collaborates with Principal Investigators and their lab members and interfaces with other departments as needed to complete job responsibilities. The RA works autonomously to complete nonscientific grant content and tasks, facilitate human resource activities for the laboratories, advises the PIs on relevant matters and develops effective solutions to administrative issues but is also part of a team of colleagues performing similar duties. We seek someone with skills in research administration as well as strong organizational skills, an interest in continuous learning, a sense of humor and a desire to work in a supportive and collegial community.
